    Right to Review Teacher Qualifications

    The Glendale Union High School District continues its long-standing tradition of providing quality instructional staff to work with your children. Its teachers are recruited from the strongest teacher preparation programs in Arizona and across the nation. All teachers participate in ongoing professional development activities to maintain their content knowledge, as well as their ability to plan and deliver effective instruction. The district is proud of its record of student achievement, which is a direct result of the efforts of its professional staff.

    As a parent of a student in the Glendale Union High School District, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s teachers and requires us to provide this information in a timely manner. Specifically, you have the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s teachers: whether the Arizona State Department of Education has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and the subjects he/she teaches; circumstances; the teacher’s college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees and if so, the subject of the degrees; whether any teacher’s aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and if they do, their qualifications.

    The Glendale Union High School District looks forward to continuing its positive partnership with parents. Your high expectations for student achievement, school involvement, and appropriate behavior on behalf of your student make an important difference in the success of GUHSD. For more information, please call Allison Mattingly at 623-435-6018.


    Rights for Students with Disabilities

    Pursuant to the individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004, each school district is responsible for identifying, evaluating and providing service for all public, private, or home-schooled children with disabilities. If your child attends a private school or is home-schooled, and you feel that your child may need to be screened for a possible disability, you should contact the GUHSD Office of Special Education at 623-435-6067. You may also refer your child for screening by contacting the school psychologist at the public school your child would attend if he/she attended public school. All public school students are screened within six weeks of the date of enrollment in the public school.
